The Count of Monte Cristo

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Alexandre Dumas’ classic paints a portrait of Edmond Dantès, a dark and calculating man who is willing to wait years to exact his perfect plan for revenge. After his so-called friends frame him for treason, Dantès is sentenced to life imprisonment in a grim island fortress on what was supposed to be his wedding day. After 14 years, he manages to escape prison, but he is unable to free himself from an all-consuming fury. Instead, Dantès spends a decade carrying out the plan for revenge he conceived while behind bars, bringing nightmarish ruination to those who once betrayed him-and second chances to those who tried to save him.

When it was first published in 1844, The Count of Monte Cristo quickly became the best-selling book in all of Europe. Dumas’ novel was ahead of its time, an exciting tale of adventure, treasure, secret identities, and daring escapes. It also reads like an early psychological thriller, leaving readers uneasy as they cheer Dantès on in his vengeful quest. It’s no wonder this book has inspired dozens of screen adaptations!

- Who knew?5 star

When Jay, on Modern Family, finds out from Manny that charcuterie is basically cold cuts which he loves, he exclaims, “What an unfortunate name. I’ve been avoiding this stuff for years.” I feel that way about the Count of Monte Cristo. I had for years imagined what this book was about and it was nothing like I imagined it. Adventures, intrigue, betrayal, hate, love. There’s mystery, crime, religion...and pirates. A great book.

- so much love5 star

the count of monte cristo is undoubtedly one of my favorite works of literature. is it a bit lengthy? yes, but believe me when i tell you that chapters will fly by when you’re reading this. the book filled a space in my heart i didn’t realize was empty before, and i definitely do not regret the damage constantly flipping through page by page did to my eyesight. monte cristo is a classic in the truest sense of the word. timeless, enlightening, a vision in virtual paper and ink—you kind of need to read it.

- Beautiful book5 star

I've read my share of 19th century novels, and this one ranks up near the top. One of the best European novels I've ever read. Every Character in this book has a long backstory, and by the end, I feel that one could write a biography on every major character. Better than the movie!!!!!!!

- Magnificent!5 star

A must read for anyone and everyone. Absolutely amazing piece of literature. Dumas will make you feel happiness, misery, anger, surprise so many times that you will laugh out loud, cry, curse, gasp and truly enjoy this wonderful story of Edmond Dantes.

- Good3 star

I am unsure if I like this book or not, lol. It was a very difficult read, but at the same time a very good book.

- The Count of Monte Cristo5 star

I rate this book as one of the absolutely best books I have ever read. Fantastic!!!! But beware, it will consume you to the point of doing nothing else until it is finished.

- Amazing5 star

Best book ever written!

- Long and Wonderful5 star

This book (unabridged) is long and wonderful. It gains momentum over the course of reading, and is very satisfying. I have read the whole enormous thing twice now. Suspend your disbelief, enter the world described, and enjoy the ride!

- It is a classic....3 star

But not necessarily a great classic. I see it more as a 200 year old Nora Roberts novel...

- Fantastic!!5 star

This is a fantastic book, as well as -for good reason- a Classic. Besides, if you're on the fence, you can't beat the price!

- Bklynguy385 star

It a excellent book a must read next to fifty shades of grey

- Excellent novel!5 star

This is the best book that I have read so far. Not only it was hard to put down in the middle of the reading, the scenes of the books stayed with me days after I had finished the book. Wonderful!

- Outstanding!5 star

This is by far one of the best books I have ever read. As always, it is infinitely better than the movie and a true masterpiece. This is a story you can immerse yourself into and feel as though you are right there as Edmond endures tragedy, pursues revenge, and ultimately finds love. READ THIS BOOK!!!!!

- A classic5 star

A classic everyone should read!

- Great book5 star

It's a tough read at first because of the political background that is delivered through a host of several new characters. But once it gets rolling, it is hard to put down. Some great irony with the fathers and the main characters. Some memorable quotes and insightful looks at human frailty and weakness as well as human strengths. The movie barely scratches the surface of the book and it also changes the plot to accommodate a "Hollywood" finish. Well written and complex novel. Glad I read it!

- Brilliant!5 star

Simply magnificent!

- Excellent5 star

Highly detailed, this novel seems to have more in common with a top o the line movie than it does a fiction novel.

- Must Read!5 star

Longest book I've ever read but definitely one of the best. What made the book so long is the background of characters, for Instance Bertuccio or Haidee, wherein as you go along you'll realize that it actually makes sense to include them. When Edmond Dantes became a count it was so interesting how he studied his villains that every move ended up as checkmate. This is a story about vengeance, dirty politics, love, and forgiveness. Some of you might think this version is too long, but just to let you know every page is worth reading, don't settle for the abridged version or you'll miss out on all the great scoop!

- Love this book!5 star

First I saw the movie and love it, then my teacher asked this book, and omg, its perfect! I love revenge and how he learned... I found myself on jail too, I truly recommend this book!

- Amazing!!!5 star

This book has action drama and excitement and much much more... It is supposed to be on everyone's to read list!!!

- Well Krafted5 star

Held my interest throughout though I feared it would not at times. Engaging human story passionately told!

- The Count of Monte Cristo5 star

One of the great Classics! Pain, love, suffering and revenge all intertwined make this one really hard to put down. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

Great classic story, but the proof reader needs his eyes tested. So many printing errors, repeated passages, it was disappointing.
